Dulwich Hamlet will play League Two Carlisle United in the first round of the FA Cup. 

Gavin Rose’s Hamlet won 2-1 at Havant & Waterlooville to book a place at this stage for the first time in 21 years.

Former Coventry and Fleetwood boss Steven Pressley’s Carlisle are struggling in 20th place in the fourth tier after Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at Plymouth.

United have former Millwall defender and twice League One play-off final winner Byron Webster and ex-Manchester City midfielder Kelvin Etuhu in their squad.

The Hamlet will aim for a spot in the second round when they face United at 3pm on November 9.
